Perceived Gang Violence Declines

November 10, 2005  | 

According to a National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), victims perceived perpetrators to be gang members in about 6 percent of violent victimizations between 1998 and 2003. That’s down from 9 percent between 1993 and 1996.

Victims believed that perpetrators were not gang members in 55 percent of all nonfatal violent crimes between 1998 and 2003, and victims were unsure of gang affiliation in 37 percent of such crimes.
